A 30-MINUTE demo allowing Maryborough's Station Square shoppers to taste four different recipes will continue at the centre until tomorrow.

4 Ingredients cookbook series author Kim McCosker has set up a mobile kitchen, hoping that something from her demos will resonate with her onlookers. "When I'm doing a demo, you're feeding a family for $10 and I actually itemise it, cook with it and let them taste it," Mrs McCosker said.

"It's really amazing what you can do with so few ingredients - the star ingredient is flavour."

The cookbook guru said centre management had been fantastic and she had been working closely with Coles Supermarket, which supplied the ingredients for free.

"Coles supplied on-special and in-season food to cook," she said.

"My two-ingredient cup cake was a big hit - it was a big wow factor. I made it in less than five minutes and it tasted good."

She said her cookbooks were the busy person's kitchen bible.

"When it's simple, it's easy; when it's easy, it's fun," she said.

Station Square is giving away 40 copies of One Pot, One Bowl cookbooks every day during the demos.


  • Kim McCosker, author of the 4 Ingredients cookbook series, will hold cooking demonstrations at Station Square Shopping Centre, Lennox St, Maryborough, at 11am and 1pm today and tomorrow.
